The tournament's key sponsor is Dutch insurance firm Aegon. The Aegon Trophy and Aegon Nottingham Challenge are the only challenger events to be held on grass. The tournament is held at the end of May before the main tour's grass court season starts.

In 2015, the women's competition will be upgraded to a WTA International tournament with $235,000 in prize money.

Location[edit]

The tournament is held annually at the Nottingham Tennis Centre[1] within the University Park area of Nottingham.

History[edit]

The city used to hold an ATP Tour event, the Nottingham Open; however, due to its failure to attracted big names the tournament was merged with the Women's Eastbourne International event in 2009.[2] It was merged with Eastbourne due to the LTA wanting to attract an umbrella sponsor and a younger audience to Eastbourne.[3] However in December 2008, it was announced that Nottingham would take over from Surbiton, in hosting the grass court ATP challenger and ITF event. It started in 2009, replacing the Surbiton Trophy due to the renovation of the facilities that had been undertaken at the Nottingham Tennis Centre.[4][5] The new WTA International competition will commence on 8 June 2015.
